Default 02-07 Sti wing. Which to buy?

Purchasing an STI wing for my 03 WRX, already set on it, so don't give me the "stick with stock" speech. My question is which of two do I buy. I got a guy selling a sanded/primed for $140, and another guy selling an already painted one for 300$. BIGGEST QUESTION IS would rattle canning (normal spray can) work and look good since it's a fiberglass wing?

Note- would want the wing to be WRB, might complicate things.

Rattle can never looks right on large pieces. Ive seen small trim done well, but anything too big and it obvious it was from a can. IMO i would buy the painted one, especially if it looks good. Its will cost at least the difference to paint it right, and the results may not be what you want.

Or, post up in your local subforum / facebook offering a swap for an STI wing.

Don't bother with that aftermarket garbage. Went through three that cracked before going wingless.

to professionally paint something is more than 150. to rattle something and do it well takes more than $150 worth of your time, imo. Buy the painted one.

get one that's painted especially if you keep the car for along time as it will help when you sell it or for those moments when you walk to your car and are looking at it from far and admiring it.
